Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 2005Q2 High Availability Administration Guide

Tasks Available through the Admin Console and asadmin Tool

For node agents, some tasks must be performed locally on the system where the node agent runs, while others can be performed on the Domain Administration Server. Tasks that need to be performed locally are only available through the asadmin tool running on the machine where the node agent resides. Tasks that operate on the Domain Administration Server are available through the Admin Console and through the asadmin tool

The following table summarizes the tasks and where to run them:
